|Hi Maremma Foster Parent !
I applaud you for fostering a Maremma.
Bella is my first Maremma, so I'm not an expert in all their behavior. I do notice that Bella, now over 1 1/2 years old still loves to chew everything she can get a hold off. I think they just love to chew. I give Bella rawhides and chewing bones all the time and she just absolutely loves those. She still destroys other things though.
Bella is the same way as your Maremma. She does not listen at all. I think that is a Maremma trademark. They are bred to make their own decisions, not to listen to someone else. The only time she will come and listen is when she thinks she'll get a treat Bella is a bit clumsy too at times, but I think it's just that she thinks she can ram through things and push them out of the way, instead of going around them. And a lot of time she does succeed. She has a lot of strength.
